The Latest 10-Year Treasury Yield Increase Could Affect Your Decision to Buy or Refinance
Industry - April 27, 2018

CHARLOTTE, NC – This week we witnessed the 10-year Treasury yield reach 3% for the first time since January 2014, and it’s expected to rise even higher. This shift is likely because the Fed is expected to hike interest rates again in the near future. And with the economic growth the nation is experiencing comes debt that’s necessary to finance it and more inflation. If the 10-year Treasury yield continues to rise, it could affect business and consumer loans—including the possibility of an increase in mortgage interest rates.

In light of this milestone in the market, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing a drop in rates anytime soon. This should be reason enough to refinance or lock in your home purchase interest rate now. Rates are rising and they could be rising faster than we think. If you’re looking for a sign to buy or refi, now may be the time to lock in your rate and get in before the market shifts again.
